A couple of Nashers
There once was a muse who espoused creativity;
Tho' laughingly inspired words lacking civility.
Easy to imitate badly, impossible to imitate well,
Nash’s comedic style is irreverantly silent as a bell.
Easy to spot his orange hair,
Trump has a flair for his lair.
He takes much from the poor
For he owes his rich amour.
Not other wives, oh no!
But his Russian sponsor-o!
